Ubisoft has confirmed via its official forums that the PC edition of Far Cry 2 will use the dreaded SecuROM DRM technology, albeit a slightly modified and more reasonable version of what was released with Spore and Crysis Warhead.
According to the company, users will get five activations to use on three separate PCs. Unlike previous games incorporating SecuROM, however, Far Cry 2 will come standard with a way to revoke an activation to migrate from computer to computer. In other words, as long as owners properly uninstall the game, they'll be able to install it an unlimited number of times on up to three systems.
This is similar to what EA offered last month, when it promised to deploy a patch “in the near future” to address the three install limit on Spore. Ubisoft also said it is fully committed to the long term support of their games and that “additional activations can be provided” if necessary.
